This is perfect for those who are new to the sport and have limited time to train, yet are still looking to achieve great progress.
This all-inclusive training program consists of three (3) weightlifting sessions per week, each approximately 60 minutes.
This program places a high emphasis on technical training, speed development, and building out a lifter’s “movement toolbox”; all of which are necessary for Level 2 and Level 3 training. Additionally, this program includes fundamental strength work like squats, presses, and pulls to build strength and fitness.
This foundational Olympic weightlifting program is geared for beginners looking to get into the sport and/or those lifters who have trained for less than 3 months (with minimal exposure to formal Olympic weightlifting training programs). Many CrossFitters will find success using this program as it also allows for flexibility with WOD training yet still addresses common technical errors many beginners and CrossFitters make in the snatch, clean, and jerk.
Below are the typical weekly frequencies of each movement.
Squat (back and front): 1-2x/week
Pulling (clean and snatch/deadlifts): 1-2x/week
Accessory Work: 2-3x/week
